Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?

I had a relatively usual life, a little under-active, fairly healthy. I had mild covid 6 months before vaccination, but was fine afterwards.

Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?

Symptoms: heavy breathing, heart palpitations, tinnitus, blurry vision, brain fog, fatigue, depression, muscle pain, tremors, seizure like feelings, etc. Timeline: onset of symptoms 1 week after 1st shot, then became gradually worse, lowest point was 2 months after 1st shot, went to ER 2x during this time, now at 6 months feeling a little better, but still far from OK.

Q: What was your life like after you got the vaccine?

Feeling somewhat disabled, was on sick leave for 4 months, now working with reduced hours (40=>20h/week)

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:

Diagnoses: sinus tachycardia, depression, anxiety Medical care: psychiatry, cardiology, neurology, ear specialist, soon ophthalmology

Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?

Not reported yet, but I'm planning to do it myself soon to both authorities and manufacturer.

Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?

Time, rest, relaxation techniques, therapy, SSRI's, walking, praying, support groups, avoiding junk food, coffee, alcohol Starting beta blockers soon.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Something went wrong with my health right after vaccination, I don't believe it's just mental, as doctors keep telling me, but most of my tests came back negative. I know I'm not the only one, and we are not really believed, so we need acknowledgement and more focus from science to look into this, people are suffering, similarly to post-covid.
